Richard Steiner, CFP®

Managing Director


Before I can speak intelligently about the services that might be appropriate for you and your family, I need to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know me.

First being, I am the Managing Director for Northwestern Mutual here in Aventura, FL.

After Earning my Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication from Ithaca College in 1991 I had exposure to different types of sales organizations before joining Northwestern Mutual in 1997. After 15 years of industry experience is when I created The Aventura Group in July of 2011. Under my leadership, it has started to a great start with multiple financial representatives under my direction having achieved national awards and recognition.  As an example of my dedication to professional excellence and my commitment to learning, I obtained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2008.

I've spent the last 21 years learning everything there is to know about this industry -- from helping my clients plan their financial future to helping ensure them, their families and businesses are protected now and in the future. We all have big ideas for the future and I'm here to help you live the life you want and the one you never thought you could.
